Caroline Gloux is a self-taught French artist, born and raised in Stavanger, Norway; where she is currently based. She has also lived in France, Australia and Switzerland.
Art and creativity lies in the genes on her father’s side of the family (including a gallery in Brittany, France) and she has from an early age, drawn, painted and been interested in all kinds of art, design, makeup and fashion. She gets inspiration from emotions, nature, music and her travels around the world. Creating her own interpretations with a modern twist to it. Often simple designs but with a deeper meaning, hiding strong emotions and feelings. There is always a multitude of interpretations and color adds an extra layer of depth.
She paints everything from abstract to figurative with acrylic on canvas and a touch of marker. In her paintings she also uses colorology and the “dot” technique. The color choice and shapes are intuitive, energetic and healing.
“She is a French creative with Nordic influence”
“Looking at my paintings, I would like you to be left with positive energy and a smile on your face.
I’m French, but I have lived most of my life in Norway. That does influence my art in some way, specially the bond with nature. As people say about me: “She is a French creative with Nordic influence”.
Being also a makeup artist, I got used to work with colors; mixing and matching the personality of a person. With painting it is the same, switching the face for the canvas. Having studied color therapy, I do believe that colors are healing and are awakening emotions within and around us.
Art is a way to express myself, to open-up, healing myself to heal others. Through my artwork, you get a piece of me. From my soul to yours.”
